Pop artist Andy Warhol was known for his bold portraits of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Marlon Brando, but his classic masterpiece will always be the Campbell soup can.
In 1962, the relatively Warhol revealed his first major one-man exhibition — his now iconic artwork, “32 Campbell’s Soup Cans,” which is on display in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
With the famed artwork celebrating its 50th year, Campbell Soup Co. plans to introduce special-edition cans of its condensed tomato soup bearing labels reminiscent of the pop artist’s paintings. They will be sold at Target stores starting Sunday.
Rumor has it, that Warhol ate tomato soup every day for lunch for 20 straight years.
